New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is already one of the most polarizing figures in sports, if not the entire world, and a post to the Instagram of his girlfriend Linda Holliday likely won’t win him any new fans.
The post is a picture of the couple with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who Holliday described as “our good friend.”
Trump, at this point, is the Republican front runner and is quite polarizing himself. People either really like what he has to say, or are passionately against him. Oddly enough, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady implied his support of Trump earlier this season.
Now, granted, on the whole, this picture is probably meaningless. If Holliday and Trump are indeed friends, then the picture is what it is. There’s nothing politically implied.
But by the same token, given how Belichick already has his fair share of critics, this just gives them another piece of ammo to use.
